Watch the Groovin' And Slidin' online guitar lesson by Corey Congilio from Rhythm Factory: Texas Blues
Like in our shuffle examples, we can ditch chord shapes all together sometimes for rhythmic riffs. These riffs can set up songs or be the melody to a song all together. This example is a very major sounding riff. We're in the key of A and notice the mutes and slides. Riffs like this help us to explore the fretboard which is always a good thing!
